Improving While Participating in Truth Clarification Projects

Ms. He was invited to be a broadcaster. However, because she did not know how to use an audio editing software, whenever she read a word incorrectly, she had to redo the entire recording. She usually spent 3 hours recording two news articles. Her family who does not practice Falun Dafa became upset because she spent so much time on the project. She thought it was too hard and wanted to quit.

By reading the Fa, she realized she should not regard this as an everyday person’s task. She should see it as her mission to assist Master in Fa- rectification and an opportunity to improve in cultivation. She studied the materials on video and audio production, learned some professional skills and practiced. Through constant Fa study and improving herself, she was finally able to calmly read the articles. 

Overcoming a Sudden Tribulation Through Studying the Fa

Ms. Ouyang has practiced Falun Dafa for three decades. This June, her welfare payments suddenly stopped. Despite her poor English, she made many phone calls to try and sort things out but failed to resolve the issue. She said she felt, “extremely anxious and in great despair” by the sudden loss of income.

After sharing with practitioners, she reminded herself not to worry about the situation. She focused on studying the Fa, sending righteous thoughts and examining herself to see where she could improve in cultivation. She found many attachments including fear. She also understood that Master did not arrange for practitioners to be homeless.

She calmed down after spending long hours studying the Fa for several days. She let go of her fear of loss and gain and was less worried about the outcome. Her faith in Master grew stronger. She wrote a letter to the government. Although there were subsequent twists and turns, she no longer felt anxious. The matter was smoothly resolved.

New Practitioner Recovered from Sickness Karma

Mr. Hung from Vietnam is 71 years old, and said he learned about Falun Dafa on the Internet in 2019. He watched Master’s exercise instruction video and listened to the nine-day lecture series. He had a revelation after reading in Zhuan Falun, “One should return to one’s original, true self; this is the real purpose of being human.” He began to practice cultivation.

Two months later, his health improved significantly. Many ailments he had for years were gone. He read the Fa, did the exercises and looked inward.

However, his illness came back. Before he practiced Falun Dafa, Mr. Hung often recited Buddhist scriptures. When he read the Falun Dafa teachings, he heard the Buddhist scriptures being read and he even heard them at night when he was asleep. He realized this was a form of thought karma. However, this went on for a long time and he wondered if he should go to the doctor to have his hearing checked. Later, his right arm became increasingly painful. It even affected him when he did the second exercise. His wife, who is not a practitioner urged him to see a doctor. His heart was moved, but he realized, “This mistake gave the old forces a loophole to exploit. This situation went on for nearly a year.”

He did the exercises with another practitioner outside, and after a period of time, his hearing problem and arm pain went away. He realized he must let go of all doubts and fear. He also realized his faith in Master and Dafa was not solid. He took a long time to recover from his illness because he was afraid of stopping the medication he had been relying on for many years. 

As soon as he stopped taking the medicine his sickness karma disappeared.His wife had doubts about Dafa in the beginning. When she saw the blessings practicing Falun Dafa brought to the whole family, she began encouraging Mr. Hung to practice.

Young Practitioner Learns to Forbear

Kaitlyn, 11, attended a summer camp in New York where she studied Chinese classical dance for 6 weeks. The first day she had to stretch her legs. It was an extremely painful experience. Afterwards, she lay in bed and wept. Her body continued to ache for several days and she did not want to return to the class.

Kaitlyn later watched a video on the Shen Yun creations platform. In the video, Shen Yun dancers shared how they persisted when things became difficult. She also met several Shen Yun dancers. They told her their legs hurt terribly when they first started dancing. They encouraged her not to give up. She persevered and gradually, her legs no longer hurt as much.
